Georgia Senatorial candidate and pathological liar Herschel Walker is going through some things right now. And what he is going through is — desperation.
Walker has done everything he possibly could to avoid debating Senator Raphael Warnock. The reason is apparent. Walker can’t string one sentence together.
And, of course, were he to actually show up at a debate, the whole of Georgia would know this. So in the spirit of avoidance, Walker had been dodging the debates to a preposterous degree.
And Warnock has noticed. His latest television ad calls out the embittered Walker and tells him point blank — stop dodging. Walker, finally agreed (tentatively) to debate Warnock. He made that announcement on Fox non-news. No surprise there. Speaking with Brian Kilmeade, Walker insisted he’s game to debate “under the right rules.”
Notice the evasion there — the wiggle room he left himself. Not exactly subtle. Only I do not believe Walker will debate. The reason is that he must know his poll numbers will drop even lower if he dares to try to debate one of the best Senators in the country.
The fact is the Republicans seem to want to hide Walker away from the American people. And why wouldn’t they? Walker is unfit, and anyone with a brain must know that. In Warnock’s ad, entitled “scared,” Warnock just says it outright — why hasn’t Walker agreed to any debates?
At one time, Walker, attempting to look fit for the job he is applying for, had this to say about the debates: “Name the place and the time, and we can get it on.” Not quite William Shakespeare, but he managed not to mangle THAT statement. Some of Walker’s excuses not to debate have been pretty amusing.
For example, Walker, at a recent campaign event, demanded to know “who made Warnock the ruler of just giving (Debate) dates.” Oh, Walker, Walker — this is not working out for you, Buddy. It really isn’t. It is rather fun to see Walker squirming like this.
I doubt Walker will actually show up for any debate because he knows he would be going up against a master Chess player. I think for Walker, he does not want to hear the words “Checkmate.”
